Super idea but needed some oomph”! I added a bit of Cabot (of course) habenaro cheese and a dash of soy to give the filling more backbone. Also needed something on top to make it prettier so sprinkled a bit of cheese and basil on top before serving. Cooked 3 min longer than recipe specified because my mushrooms were huge. This was a hit!”
